I nearly forgot about this final contest... nearly, but not quite. I actually have the perfect yarn in my stash. It's superwash merino sock yarn from Hello Yarn, in the colorway 'Doom'. It makes me think of a raspberry mocha.
Granted, this color is no longer available, but Adrian's colorways are always stunning, so it's hard to go wrong.
As for the pattern, I'm planning on making Monkey. And let me tell you, I'm having one heck of a hard time restraining myself from casting on for these. I really want to see how this color works up.
